Richard came to Puerto Rico from England in 2001 and Sandra is a native born Puerto Rican. We both work in tourism and live in the nearby town of Luquillo.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2005

We purchased the property to enable us access to the beach and members pool club area which are idyllic and quintessential caribbean. We used to live nearby on the hillside so to be able to jog down to the beach and pool area in 10 minutes was a real bonus. Now we live in Luquillo (down the beach!). We love our Rio Mar property and we hope to share it with you!

This property feels upscale because of the tight security on entrance-who doesn't love to feel important! On entering the resort and in particulat Cluster 2 (where the property is located) the mediterranean (award winning) design of the buildings and lay out of the area sets the scene for a relaxing vacation in beautiful surroundings. Folks always comment on how they love the ambience and setting of the Cluster. What then occurs to you is how close the property is to the pool! (steps!). On entering the villa the spectacular view overlooking the golf course lakes and green tropical beauty is a wow and then you see the hotel and realize how close you are to the beach. Open up those windows and let that warm caribbean prevailing breeze pass through the villa and you have arrived!

In A word -Fantastic! This villa has a beautiful view of the Golf course, is very comfortable and nicely finished and has a perfect location right next to the pool with a nice easy walk to the beach and members beach pool club. We opened up the windows and had the cool Caribbean breeze blowing through the villa while we were there and then at night we didn't evan need the 2 AC units that the villa has. My wife and I slept on the Queen bed and our 2 kids slept in the loft area which has a low roof but was perfect for our teenagers and would be a great option for younger kids too.
We found everything to be in perfect working condition (not sure how the folks below didn't) and towels, linens and furniture was all in great shape and seemingly new. The villa inside and its surrounding area has a really nice Mediteranean feel and the grounds are beautiful. The hotel has great restaurants and amenities that we made full use of and we found some great restaurants just outside the resort. The owner Richard was very helpful in giving us direction on things to do and we found the Rio Mar area VERY convenient for the Rainforest, Horseback riding and ATV Rainforest tours, Bioluminescent bay kayak tour(at night!) Catamaran day trips snorkelling on the reefs and of course Old San Juan!
Strongly recopmmend this villa to families of 4 for activities and beach vacation and also to couples for a nice quiet romantic getaway.

Know what you are getting into

I was pretty worried going in on this rental. Only recent positive reviews are "owner entered" and there are a number of negative reviews. The lack of recent VRBO reviews made me worried, but I took a chance. Glad I did.

Read the reviews carefully to understand what you are getting. In terms of the loft area, you crawl into bed. Really not a problem and kids love it. As for the main floor, the bed is actually a full, not a queen as claimed. The beach pool area described as a "five minute walk" is a little over a half mile away (0.62). The hotel pool and amenities are a 15 minute walk down the beach once you get to the beach pool area. Note that you will not have towel privileges at the hotel. I spoke with the two different managers on two different days and both indicated towels are only for hotel guests, not condo owners. Hotel guests get a "towel card" and the towels are strictly checked out/checked in, so you will not be able to get one. Make sure to take a towel with you. OTOH, the cluster pool is literally across the street, steps away.

The architecture of the villa cluster is very cool. The buildings are set into the hillside and have a Spanish theme with tile roofs, white washed walls, and awnings. You enter this unit through stairs in a turret. Excellent tiling and materials.

The unit is very centrally located to the rain forest, horseback riding (there is a place just down the street which combines ride through dense forest with a ride on the beach), zip lining and restaurants. Definitely recommend Antojitos, but Richies Cafe, not so much (great view, but touristy and overpriced). About four traffic lights toward Luquillo you will find 65 "Kiosks" which are small restaurants in a strip where the locals go. Amazing local food, amazingly cheap.

The reviews for this villa and Richard's other unit say he is hard to get in touch with. I think that's a fair comment, although he clearly has regular job. It is not a problem as ultimately any concern is addressed. There is not the friendly "I want you to have a good time and will help" vibe that you get most VRBO owners -- it is more like renting from a company, not that there is anything wrong with that. The criticisms from both units regarding the directions are also fair, but you'll find it eventually.

Overall, there is a bit of hype to the description, but if you read carefully and know what you are getting, then you will be most satisfied. Recommended!

Owner's Response: Thanks Thomas,
The only thing I have to add is that the bed is definitely a Queen. Full size linens do not fit this bed and the linens that do say queen! I can guarantee this bed size to future renters for whom this may be a concern.

Great location and perfect for us!

My best friend and I came to the Rio Mar for a conference and wanted to stay in the villas instead of the hotel. Since there were only two of us this was great! I am only 5'3 so I chose to stay in the small loft while Matt slept downstairs . The loft was def on the short side but as I only slept upstairs I had no issues! There was an ac and multiple fans- but we chose to keep the windows open most of the time and it was great. The pool is right outside, the beach was super close... the hotel we had to pay parking so you may want to check into a golf cart if you are spending a lot of time on site. We traveled a lot through the week so got a rental car. Richard was great about getting back to me and everything was as expected! Considering the price compared to other options- this was perfect for our stay and if we make it back I would certainly stay here again!

We enjoyed this villa so much and the price was so good we will be back next year. Eat at richies cafe and antojitos and make sure you don't miss the junglequi zip lining. The villa is very close to all puertomrico's top attractions but we found kicking back at the villa and enjoying the cluster pool deck area the best part of our vacation. Thanks to pizarro (landscaping manager) for your hospitality.

Best location- villa best value

  • Submitted: Jul 9, 2013

Having researched the best place to be to see bio bay, old san juan and el yunque we knew Rio Mar was the right choice. When we researched your villa we did see the negative comments but because of the price we decided to take a chance. We are delighted we did. Not only was the location perfect but we decided to stay at the villa for more time than we anticipated because the amenities of the resort were perfect for us. And the villa itself was so charming. We loved the classic wooden style of the villa and all the finishing a made it feel upscale but the price was the best part about it. Thanks for the great directions and smooth check in and check out. Stay here.
